    Default Re: Why Flurry over Double cast?

    Get rid of Double Cast. Double Cast is worthless on a coercer. Go FULL Flurry. Anybody that says differently doesn't know how to use ACT and/or just talks out of their ass.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll continue to use the rat trap until I can either loot or buy the EV charm. I can un-attune it and-sell It on the broker at that point. I have the magic skill adorns instead of the casting speed ones presently. Don't I want my magic skills and focus to be as high as possible? What numbers should I be shooting for on them? I felt that SOE changing the velocity buff to whatever it was before to MA pretty much hosed coercers and made this a really weak ass spell,even with the AA's spent to turn it into a group buff, as most peeps already have pretty high MA. I felt the concentration slot that velocity would take up would be better spent throwing another peaceful link on a group or raid member. Maybe I'm thinking about it the wrong way? I'll look into respecing my heroic tree. Can't look at my toon on EQ2U right now.

    DC is better on 3+mob encounters iirc, but due to their rarity, flurry is the generally accepted route.

    I want to think this is still correct: Disruption caps at 1475 - Kander (https://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...97/#post-47488). Not sure if Focus works the same way as Crushing, Slashing, etc (I assume it does - Increasing minimum damage of attack), if so you want to get them as high as you can. I'm sitting at 1762 self buffed with raid gear.

    I lost the source to this information, if I find it I will edit the post.

    The free MA is always nice, and there is usually another Coercer to help you out with the Peaceful Links. You should have 3 Peaceful Links available. 4 if you don't run Signet of Intellect. (Don't run Power of Mind)

    Check your PMs, I sent you a link with more information.

    They don't cap at 1475, that is just the first curve. It's 2% reduction every 100 skills, then it goes down to 0.66% every 100 between 1475-2975, then something absurd like 0.16% every 100 between 2975 and 5475.

    Double cast "should" add a trigger to Hostage, but Cap is base triggers +1

    The thing is that you are with the normal AA over the cap allready (+2), the Focus effect adds 3 more.
    The only doublecast AA that is worth getting is the one from the Dragon tree since at adds an additional Trigger to Hostage (9 Triggers in total), Spell Curse (6 Triggers i think) and Destructive Mind (4 Triggers i think)

    The double cast will not effect the main spells because you are over the by AA allready => go Flurry

    I tested it once i think i had 10k dps from double cast but when i changed to flurry i got +60k dps from it. (nor sure which fight i've tested it with)
